Two Tennessee Planned Parenthood affiliates to mergeBy Dave Andrusko
NRL News Today - May 30, 2018
The Memphis Business Journal reported earlier today that two Tennessee Planned Parenthood affiliates will merge next month.
“The board and the CEOs from both of the [Planned] Parenthood affiliates made a strategic decision that we would be stronger together,” Ashley Coffield told Mary Cashiola, Managing Editor of the Memphis Business Journal. “It was through a deep commitment to ensuring the best care for our patients and the most financially sustainable model to provide that care.”
The official consolidation date for Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region and Planned Parenthood of Middle and East Tennessee is June 1. The new name, with Coffied at the helm, will be Planned Parenthood of Tennessee and North Mississippi. Coffied is currently president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region.
The newly named organization “will begin providing services June 4 and operate four health centers — two in Memphis, one in Nashville and one in Knoxville,” Cashiola reported.
Responding to the announcement, Brian Harris, president of Tennessee Right to Life, had a very different take.
